The Ballad of M. T. Nutt and His Dog
Comment on The Ballad of M. T. Nutt and His Dog and see more Andrew Barton Paterson poems below.
The Honourable M.
About the bush did jog.
Till, passing by a settler's hut,
He stopped and bought a dog.
Then started homewards full of hope,
Alas, that hopes should fail!
The dog pulled back and took the rope
Beneath the horse's tail.
The Horse remarked, "I would be soft
Such liberties to stand!"
"Oh dog," he said, "Go up aloft,
Young man, go on the land!"
